INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

As a very famous singer once said, “Give peace a chance.” Established in 1981 after unanimous resolution by the United Nations, the International Day of Peace provides for a date (September 21) shared around the globe “for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.”

We share in that commitment and asked our Skechers friends around the world seen in the images below to flash their peace signs to commemorate this important day.  To learn more about special events happening tied to this year’s UN theme of “Together for Peace:  Respect, Safety and Dignity for All,” check out the map at internationaldayofpeace.org.  We want to hear from you!  Let us know how you plan to reflect and act in the name of global peace in the comments.
